"Coinciding with the publishing of Ballard’s novel Hello America in the early 1980s a young generation of New York artists accepted the challenge to develop new art. Opposing figurative painting that had become the new big thing in Contemporary art, but considered by many as anachronistic, they were aiming to digest the mood fueled by cable TV and Reaganomics during a new rise of capitalism. Oscillating between the sheer brutal optimism of consumerism and fears of a lethal atomic attack, the early 1980s were of a similar fabric as Ballard’s dystopian Science Fiction.
